Re: The sportbike gods must hate me!!!

Oh man, that sucks. I almost dropped mine last week when I was putting the Hindle on it. I had her up on a rear stand and put the kickstand up while disconnecting the HTEV cables. I went to take it off the stand and started to lean it over on the kickstand that wasn't there! WHOA!

Re: The sportbike gods must hate me!!!

Sorry to hear, hope your luck changes for the better very soon!!

Thanks for the insight!! Iíve always torqued the rear axle on my Pitbull without a second thought, without any issues!! I will defiantly think twice before I attempt to torque/loosen the rear axle.

Re: The sportbike gods must hate me!!!

Damn...that sucks....

FWIW, when I work on the rear axle, I like to use a short extension. This allows you to put the wrench pointing toward the front of the bike when tightening.....which actually forces the tail of the bike down instead of up and off the stand. The opposite is true when loosening the nut....lay the wrench horizontally and pointing to the rear of the bike...
Just my $0.02.....

Hope you get it fixed soon....

Came very close to doing something very similar a few days ago, luckily, I was sitting in just the right spot to catch it (or have my leg broken if I didn't)

So from now on, push down when you torque that nut

Anyway, I be up in Seattle in the end of May with the 954, so you want to hit Hwy 20?
